I need to upgrade my cameras. I do mostly weddings and small business videos. What particular cameras do you suggest I buy? And what features should I look for in lens, sensor, low light capabilities, etc.?
I would like to keep it under $3,000 for a new camera.
By the way, I have always been a Sony man, but may be willing to branch out and try something else.

thanks for the recommendation. Nice video…I know it is not the topic, but can you say how you do the zooming and panning? Is it on the tripod?

Canon camera and lens are worth a try. They do produce some really great lens for wedding photography. Check out this detail buying guide: http://whatphotographygear.com/photography-gadgets/canon-lenses-for-wedding-photography.html

Thanks, that is helpful. I’d like to have a camera that provides continuous autofocus because as people move I find refocusing is taking a second and can’t be done at crucial moments. I have a 5D Mkii and a backup 600D. Is there a good camera that will autofocus as the people move around?

Usually i use a Monopod by Manfrotto and a Fluid head on Top. The “Zooms” have been done with a cheap slider on a tripod. I don’t use zoom lenses so i zoom in like that.
